Halloween Horror or a bad April fools joke. I’m not sure which.
I logged on to Amazon. I’ve been waiting for my book to be posted for sale on Amazon – it is my hope that someone I don’t know might eventually purchase this book through this site. For local folks and people I know I am more than willing to sell one of the many copies I’ve got on order. For those who follow my blog – they can buy it through the paypal buy it button I’ve got posted, but for those people just browsing the internet – I hope to one day hear that some random Amazon Shopper has decided to give my book a loving home.
So I’ve been creeping Amazon – and I found it! It’s up. Complete with an image of the cover, and above that a little blue and orange invitation to “Look Inside.” I clicked on it. Can you imagine my HORROR when I saw the Giselle Potter’s Edition of the book pop up.
|Wynken Blynken and Nod - Giselle Potter Edition.|
My indrawn breath was audible. Amazon recognizes the various versions of Wynken, Blynken and Nod as different editions of the same book. So does not see why a book produced for it’s artwork would need a different preview than any other edition with the same text. It’s a computer thing.
I’m working to try to fix this – but of course Amazon can market it’s books anyway it wants to. But of course I’m still mildly horrified.
Happy Halloween – my book is in disguise!
